Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory's Release Date May Have Leaked

The release date for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory may have just leaked for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One, pointing to November 13.

August 16, 2020

It isn’t a week in gaming without a retailer-related release date leak — and according to a new listing, we may have just filled out quota. According to a listing from Austrian retailer Gameware, we may finally have the release date for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. Specifically, the game might come out on November 13, 2020.

News comes by way of Austrian gaming retailer Gameware in a listing, first spotted by Twitter user So_Ethereal:

A quick scan of the retailer’s page shows that the listing hasn’t been removed since earlier today, and it isn’t immediately clear on how long the listing has had this release date.

As always, there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical about retailer leaks — which are more often than not placeholder dates. Let us not forget the time that Amazon listed Cyberpunk 2077 as coming out sometime between 2030 and 2099. Another thing of note, it seems like the listing page does not have the cover art, nor a listing for Xbox One. So it is clearly working off of incomplete information. Even still, earlier leaks have proven to be true — including the Square Enix-based leak of Marvel’s Avengers PlayStation exclusivity for Spider-Man.

In short, make sure you are taking this rumor with a grain of salt — but I’ll be marking my calendar down for the next chunk of Kingdom Hearts lore. Even if the rest of my team is a little less enthused:

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is the rhythm-based follow up to Kingdom Hearts 3 that will be going over many of the cutscenes. Revealed about two months ago, fans of the series were told the game would launch sometime in 2020 — though an exact date hadn’t yet been specified. You can check what the gameplay looks like in the trailer below:

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is set to launch in 2020 (perhaps November 13th) on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. If you haven’t managed to play the winding Disney x Square Enix epic, now would be a perfect time to pick up the All-in-One Package on Amazon (to help support DualShockers) and get ready for the next installment.
